Tlou Energy Ltd (LON:TLOU) has raised the equivalent of £1.6mln (A$2.9mln) through a share sale in Botswana.

Sophisticated investors in Botswana have subscribed for 29mln new Tlou shares at the equivalent price of 5.5p (10 Australian cents) – specifically, the investment comes from a long-term existing shareholder as well as a new Botswana-based fund manager.

It comes as Tlou continues to advance its coal bed methane project in Botswana and follows a A$1.2mln funding earlier this month.

“It is very pleasing to welcome to our registry a new local fund manager, along with further investment by our largest shareholder, and I would like to thank them for their support."

In afternoon trading, shares in Tlou Energy were 8.7% higher at 6.25p.
